Kiwanis Club Leesburg, Virginia
COVID-19 ALERT. The club currently is not meeting physically amid the coronavirus pandemic. We gather on Zoom meeting on the first and third Thursdays of each month, 6:30 pm. For an invitation email Secretary Bob, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Club response to Covid-19. Everywhere you look people in our community are hurting. Many struggle to make ends meet. At our April 16 meeting our Kiwanis club approved donations that will help those in need: Loudoun Hunger Relief, Mobile Hope Loudoun, the Saint Lucy Project of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington, and the Little Pantry outside Crossroads Baptist Church on Edwards Ferry Rd NE in Leesburg. We invite you to help too!
Founded by local business leaders in March, 1957, our organization of passionate volunteers–business people, professionals, government workers, moms and dads, and retirees–serves Loudoun County one child and one community at a time.
We are best known for sponsoring the annual Halloween parade held in Leesburg since 1957.
We sponsor Key Clubs in 8 Loudoun County high schools. Students run these service leadership programs under faculty supervision, providing much needed community service by sponsoring projects that benefit their schools and the community at large, while receiving valuable leadership training and experience.
Community service is a big part of Kiwanis—we truly serve the children of the world, beginning in Loudoun County. In our decades of service we have supported many different organizations. Our club most recently has locally supported INOVA Loudoun Hospital’s pediatric units, Loudoun Hunger Relief, Mobile Hope, the Saint Lucy Project, NIH’s Children’s Inn, a Little Pantry in northeast Leesburg, and youth projects. At Christmas we partner with Toys for Tots and deliver toys to pediatrics patients in the hospital. Presently, we are developing a reading initiative to help underserved children in the county.
What is Kiwanis?
No, we are not an airline (that’s Quantas). We are a service organization that helps kids. Here is a quick video that explains what Kiwanis is.
